xfree.hu is a Hungarian web portal operated by TVN.hu, home of a vast amount of user-generated content of several types.
The TVN.hu company's balance has been deeply in the red for years now, so the site is endangered. As it's not among the most popular ones (Alexa HU rank: 419 as of 2015-12-26), it probably won't be bought by another company – but has a lot of content.
Interesting, however, that people actively use the site even nowadays, they are still uploading content too.
The following are xfree and xfree related services provided by TVN.hu that are interesting for an archivist, with content dating back to 2006. (Numbers as of 2015-12-26.)
